Can you help? This database is a work in progress. It has been compiled from a variety of sources including trade directories, books, maps, census returns, conversations with elderly relatives/acquaintances and more. Although care has been taken, it may include errors, omissions and/or duplications. If you can help with the accuracy of this project, please contact me.

NOTES
  • The date in the 'Year' column is the earliest reference I have found to the related pub in the resources currently available to me. Some pubs are therefore likely to date back even further. A question mark (?) in the Year column denotes a pub that I know, or have it on good authority, existed but do not yet have specific documentary evidence to back this up. If you can throw any further light on these pubs and when they may have opened please contact me.
  • In order to keep the list manageable, pubs opened in the last decade or two have typically not been included even if they have subsequently closed.
